Vidal '100% ready' to start season with Juventus

The Chile international has been the subject of interest from Manchester United all summer but took to Twitter to reiterate his commitment to the Bianconeri this season
Arturo Vidal says he is 100 per cent ready to start the season with Juventus despite interest from Manchester United.

Louis van Gaal is an avowed admirer of the Chile international and having pursued him for most of the summer, Goal revealed that United would make a final push to sign him before Monday's transfer deadline.

But Juventus have been unwavering in their public insistences that Vidal will not be sold this summer and now the player himself appears to have scotched talk of a move to Old Trafford.

Vidal tweeted: "Ready to start the championship! We are 100% Juventus !!!!!"

Manchester United have recruited Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria this summer for a combined outlay of over £100 million as Van Gaal bids to reinvigorate an ailing squad.
